A Policy Dialogue meeting on Climate Change and Agriculture was held in Hanoi, Vietnam on December 16, 2010 bringing together a range of stakeholders including researchers, policymakers, civil society organizations, and media specialists. The main objectives of this Policy Dialogue were to share knowledge, receive feedback on research findings, understand the challenges that exist for translating policy research into action on the ground, and explore ways of collaborating to find solutions. The Policy Dialogue allowed participants to review and build upon research conducted by SRD and IFPRI on Vietnam’s policy and institutional framework for addressing climate change and high value agriculture. A key message that emerged from the Policy Dialogue was that, while Vietnam has robust high level policies on climate change; small-scale farmers need assistance in identifying practical mitigation measures that are feasible and bring livelihood benefits.
